Yara Shahidi modeled a monumental outfit on the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards red carpet tonight.
The “Grown-ish” actress tapped her own Adidas collaboration for the occasion, bring athleisure to the glamourous event in the most on-trend way. The collection launched this past week and features pieces inspired by the actress‘ Iranian roots with Persian influences and statement graphics; layered over a mesh-yellow Etro bustier top, the new satin top retails for $180 with matching pants selling for the same price at Adidas.com.
The bold look also taps into this season’s newfound appreciation for corseted silhouettes and bustier designs, spotted on everyone from Kylie Jenner and Beyoncé to Hailey Baldwin and Rosalía in the past few weeks alone.
To complete her own elevated athleisure look, Shahidi decided on a pair of towering pumps with a low-dipping vamp and lifted heel from Louboutin.
To support the young star, Gabrielle Union herself modeled Shahidi’s new collection on the set of her new movie this past Friday.
Union’s own outfit came complete with the final piece from the new collab: Superstar sneakers. Transforming the classic silhouette, Adidas explained that the iteration blends “’60s vibes with elements of Shahidi’s Iranian heritage and Black roots.” The sneaker features cream uppers accented by hazy yellow and legacy gold detailing with an Arabic lace jewel at the forefoot.
You can shop the Yara Shahidi x Adidas Superstar sneakers for $110 on the German athletic brand’s website.
